Applesauce Doughnuts

What could be tastier than fresh doughnuts? Your family will love these cinnamon-applesauce wonders!

Applesauce DoughnutsYield: 18 doughnuts

3 1/3 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 cup applesauce
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons shortening
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
Vegetable oil
Cinnamon-sugar mixture, if desired

Beat 1 1/3 cups of the flour and the remaining ingredients except oil and cinnamon-sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, until blended. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in remaining 2 cups flour. Cover and refrigerate about 1 hour or until dough stiffens.

Heat oil (2 to 3 inches) in deep fryer or 3-quart saucepan to 375 F. Divide dough in half. Place half of the dough on well-floured cloth-covered surface; gently roll in flour to coat. Gently roll dough 3/8 inch thick. Cut with floured doughnut cutter. Repeat with remaining dough.

Slide doughnuts into hot oil, using wide spatula. Turn doughnuts as they rise to surface. Fry 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Carefully remove from oil (do not prick surfaces); drain on paper towels. Sprinkle hot doughnuts with cinnamon-sugar, if desired.

Success Hint:
The key to perfect doughnuts is maintaining the oil temperature at 375 F. Use a deep-frying thermometer for best results.
